gwen moore, the author of the violence against women act and louise slaughter. congresswoman slaughter was one of the original co-sponsors when we passed the bill way back when originally and to be joined by so many of my colleagues from the house at a time when the house has adjourned and they are still here. this is very important to us. on monday, americans heard our president issue a collarion call to action, to live up to the highest ideals of equality and opportunity to make real the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. house democrat leaders are here to fulfill that promise to protect the lives and secure the liberty and happiness of america's women and families by re-authorizing and strengthening the violence against women act. for nearly decades, the violence against women act has helped ensure that no victim of domestic violence has to suffer in violence or in the shadows. its passage led by then-senator joe biden, was a watershed moment in our history. in the years since, we have come together in a bipartisan way to re-authorize and expand the reach

. there is an article about the extraordinary reduction in cost of solar power, for example. something similar to moore's law -- >> there's also the china a lot. china overproduces to the point of bankruptcy. [laughter] which is why the panels are so low, but it is closed. >> do you see it transforming technology? >> i do. although it is controversial, we should give credit to those people who have formed these new kinds of oil drilling, generally known as tracking -- fracking. we can have a separate discussion on how to regulate them and so forth. it is very controversial. it has changed the economic structure of energy production in america. if you look at renewables, what you see now is the automation and instrumentation of the system. it changes everything. this goes under smart building. roughly 40% of the carbon emissions coming out of the u.s. are coming out of buildings. >> interesting. >> and frankly if you would stop heaping the buildings in new york and insulate them better, he would do better. if you think about solar, it is within 1 cent of a kilowatt in current structures, and that is phe

of reasonableness? mr. koester: i don't believe it does, justice kennedy. i think, as -- as virginia v. moore plainly teaches, individual state laws do not affect whether or not this activity was reasonable under the constitution. justice kennedy: but we have always -- correct me if i'm wrong. i think that we have always thought of fourth amendment reasonableness standards as being a national standard. suppose 40 states -- you know, we can play the game. suppose 40 states had rules that you have warrants and many of them had expedited procedures. that's still irrelevant? we don't look at that at all? mr. koester: your honor, i think this court's decision in sampson v. california is instructive. in that particular case, the court approved suspicion-less searches of parolees, and i think a vast majority of states disapproved of that particular law enforcement practice. but that does not bear on the issue of whether or not that violates the fourth amendment. justice scalia: of course we don't know why they disapproved. and i guess your point is they may well not have permitted it because they we

's ruckelhaus who made this clear to me and a few others. i interviewed jonathan moore who was elliot richardson's chief aide. richardson and ruckelshaus implored bork to stay. now, bork had a different legal theory what the president could or could not do. but he wanted to resign. bork actually wanted to resign and go back to yale and he just was convinced his yale friend, his colleagues would never forgive him. ruckelhaus and richardson said no, if you resign nobody is running this place and they were afraid alexander haig, someone they mistrusted, would choose a new attorney general who would be a disaster for the country and they said -- they put pressure on bork to stay. bork describes it but the beauty of these oral histories, you'll see croob rating evidence from other people who don't have the same stake bork does in his own reputation. >> what are you doing now? >> i'm an independent historian. i left and i had a book about kennedy i had been meaning to write, i had a contract for it, and i needed time to write it. i went back to writing and i have a couple books i'm working on right no

your comments on twitter at http://twitter.com/cspanwj. stephen moore has a profile of house speaker john boehner in " the wall street journal." he writes -- randy, michigan, democrat. should a debt limit increase be tied to a cut in spending? caller: the debate is to be contingents -- we should have this as a debate for future spending. you cannot not pay the bills you have ari spent. leaready spent. if you want to go forward with a good debate and one that maybe we gentlemen, we will do that. tying it to what we have already paid is silly. it is not sound. these gentlemen have been on a school board. it is nice to have your ideas. and you look at the facts, you do not get to play. facts are facts. it is fine to do that for the feature. we do not have a government like one in my house. i do not have 100,000 people added every month to my home ike we do by people being born. there is a lot of leeway. >> from twitter -- we heard from the house minority leader. her picture is in the front page of the washington time with two stories about congress and the economy. charlie, florida, rep
